It's average at the very best, the only reason it's memorable is because of Marilyn Monroe who seemed to be the only one truly putting forth an effort. She is the definition of a femme fatale. However, this turns into another Hitchcock rip-off without half the intelligence. Joseph Cotten has never been a favorite actor of mine, but I know he can play the creepy card when he wants to; in this it's pretty non-existent. The Noir effort doesn't work mainly in the fact that it's backdrop is hardly fitting, not even in an ironic sense.

Fairly run of the mill pseudo noir filmed in rather garish technicolor, memorable for being Marilyn Monroe's first starring role, and she does shine as the femme fatale.
